7.) Sponsorship: New sponsorship: Drew and Scott have spoken with the Porsche dealership in Saskatoon, who have expressed interest – they have spoken with the general manager, and suggested perhaps $150 per car for entry into the Euro Show.
Discussion held regarding perhaps requesting that dealers have a representative in attendance with their cars, to address queries, while at the Euro Show.

8.) Calendars: Scott has contacted a model friend, who would be interested in doing a calendar. As we likely lack sufficient member cars for a full calendar, perhaps we need to open it up to marques besides BMW? To do a 15-month calendar. Scott has approached Western Litho, who would charge $4 per calendar, if we order 500 of them. We need a committee for creation of calendar. All in agreement to proceed with the calendar. For the present, Scott, Drew, and Allan will be the calendar committee. We will aim to have the calendar completed in time for the Euro Show.
